Are we ‘living the American Dream’?
Not so much. But having just published a new effort at Lim’s Limericks, I thought you might want to check it out (or not!)
Written in verse, it concerns America’s past and present with the current, ongoing, and difficult Saturn-to-Neptune transit which now brings harsh reality to our door and sombers hopes and dreams - ramped up by Pluto’s recent entry into Capricorn, sign of the USA’s natal Pluto:
Well, it’s been hours now, and McCain’s pick of Alaska Governor Sara Palin on Friday is apparently no joke after all.
Robert J. Elisberg has written an insightful article on Sara Palin’s qualifications for national office and on John McCain’s choice of ‘The Worst Vice-Presidential Nominee in U.S. History’:
As Elisberg notes, Dan Quayle was a sitting senator when tapped. And Gov. Palin voted against polar bears and supports oil drilling in ANWR.
But fascinating as Sara Palin as VP may seem, there’s one thing I’ve always noted to myself (since nothing in politics happens by accident):
when they divert all eyes toward one direction, we should pay more attention to where they’re NOT pointing. For that may just be where the real shell game is being played.
Here’s a limerick scratched in the litter box of Mr.A.Cat from July 2006, ‘Alaska’:
Mr.A. doesn’t think well of corrupt political thespians so it’s a wonder he follows Politics at all!
At last! Mr. A. Cat has gotten through to us at Lim’s Limericks with a freshly scratched limerick which seems to apply to Barack Obama’s recent overseas tour of presidentiness:

As you know, Mr. Defiant was a no-show yesterday on Capitol Hill, so I penned a poem in honor of a man who knows all the Bush skeletons personally:
There once was a cat from Iran
who got hot and turned on a fan
it wasn’t enough
to cool off his fluff
so atoms were split in Tehran.
He worked long and hard on the splits
while George threw incompetent fits
by acting so proud
no weapons allowed
or sanctions will come in a blitz.
So who gave the arms race it’s start?
who played the gargantuan part?
could take the world out
but that wouldn’t be very smart.
Be careful or you’ll find more spycats, political limericks and rhymeries, plus a few kitty cat photos at:
Here’s The Guardian on the EU’s new banking freeze of Iran’s assets:
After last evening’s phone call from an offspring, I suddenly discover that family (see photo) will be descending from out of town this evening. This is good news for us, not so good news for my blogging habit.
And yet there is a political poem just penned….an open poem to the next president, no matter who the globalists decide to install in the White House. They are, as we know, the Deciders–yet still I must ask:
In Politics it’s always good
to keep yourself misunderstood
campaign Atlantic to Pacific
just don’t be over specific
play your cards close to your chest
and don’t reveal your fondest quest
until you’re in then none can fuss
(it’s not as if you’re one of us)
so hold fast to your power dreams
ignore it when your nation screams
we’re undermined and oversold
and wonder where you’ve put our gold
In Politics it’s pocket-lining
power’s sun is always shining
White House turning shades of gray
so how much more is there to say
except will you be friend or foe?
Constituents would like to know.

Wonder if it’s premature to send this bottle of bubbly bubbles to Barack Obama for today’s historic attainment?
image: Celebrate! by jude cowell; drawn for 2000′s New Millennium, but today being sent out with congrats and best wishes to the Obama campaign folks along with a small rhyme from this cautious Capricorn who hearts America and frets on behalf of the common good:
Be careful what you wish for
you may just get it all
remember what your Mama said
pride comes before a fall.
